What happens to sabbaticants?


YUFA's position is that faculty members on sabbatical are on a recognized leave and should continue to be paid by the employer. YUFA has initiated discussion of a strike protocol with the York administration and is seeking the Employer’s agreement on this matter. Our expectation is that sabbaticants could be considered to be not on strike and then would be eligible to maintain their pay, in which case they would be ineligible for strike pay (though they would still be encouraged to support their colleagues). If sabbaticants were considered to be on strike, they would not receive pay, and would be eligible for strike pay. We hope to provide a more definitive response on this matter very soon.
